I've been feeling terribly inspired to cook recently





Dress: c/o Karen Kane, shirt: Old Navy{$100 summer}, shoes: Payless, Hat: Target
Not to be confused with "I have been cooking a lot recently." Because, quite frankly, I haven't. {Unless you count tuna salad and scrambled eggs.} But I do feel like it. Especially with all the fresh veggies and such floating around and all the talk I've been hearing about quinoa everywhere. I'm kicking myself a bit for not buying the motherload of that stuff at Costco the other day. Grainy, proteiny, flexible, and budget friendly. That is the definition of a winner. Tonight, I believe we will be dining on a mixture of this lovely little miracle food with shrimp and veggie sautee. Don't we sound fancy? {When canned soup and frozen dinners are acceptible fare, this is, in fact, quite fancy.} Just in case you are interested in excercising your cooking muscles as well, here is a link to the most darling of little sites with a plethora of delicious-looking, healthy, and very budget friendly recipes: Poor Girl Eats Well. Seriously, check it out with napkin handy. You will drool.



P.S.: Don't forget to mosey over and check out the $200 Karen Kane giveaway {sidebar}.

Melissa said...

I LOOOVE the pattern mixing in this outfit!

Seriously someone needs to start a blog that is specifically for people like me who do not EVER cook, and don't enjoy cooking, but need to learn how to. I really wish I liked cooking the way some people do.

Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet

Your outfit is lovely.... the patterns of flowers and squares are working so well together on this look.
My mom loves quinoa, I've been a bit resistant to it but with so many 'properties' it looks like I am giving in. Enjoy dinner.

I love your outfit! I bought some pre-made quinoa at the grocery deli - it had cranberries, apples, nuts I think, edamame, and spinach all mixed together - it was YUMMY! I love that stuff too :)

I bought some quinoa at the grocery deli once and it all sorts of yummies in it - cranberries, edamame, spinach, almonds.... it was like a yummy little dessert.
